Former Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic claims that he is looking at the possibility of getting into management.
Numerous injuries forced the Serbian defender to call time upon his stellar career. After spending eight years at Manchester United, he won numerous titles including the Premier league and Champions League. This gave him the mighty experience of playing under Sir Alex Ferguson. He announced his retirement in January while on the books of Italian outfit Inter Milan. His last appearance for Inter was in the 2014-15 season. He failed to make any appearance in the current campaign.
Over the years, there have been several prodigies who did well under Ferguson and went on to start their own managerial careers. Steve Bruce, Roy Keane, and Gary Neville are some of those who have stepped into management after having played in the Ferguson. Vidic is keen to join the list after finding it difficult to accept the fact that he was going to retire at just 34. There have been many defenders who have carried on playing until their late 30s. On the positive note, it gives Vidic time to get his coaching licenses under the belt. The Serbian claims that he will be visiting and learning from a number of managers before embarking on his own career.
“It was a difficult decision in terms of knowing I’d played football all my life and I’m still only 34, but I knew my back couldn’t take it. I believe my back can handle the bench though! I would like to be a manger.That’s what I started preparing myself for a few years back. I would like to learn and visit some good managers and coaches and make the best of that for the next couple of years and after that try to find a club and start my career,” said Vidic.
